Way back in 1990, Madonna repackaged her hit ‚ÄúVogue‚ÄĚ in a commercial urging the kids to vote (or risk getting a ‚Äúspanky.‚ÄĚ) And the tradition continues, with Atlanta rapper Lil Jon asking celebrities what they‚Äôre turning out for (get it?) this midterm election. Lil Jon, in case you wondered, is turning out for marijauna legalization. Lena Dunham, who was in preschool when Madonna recorded that first Rock the Vote ad, is turning out for reproductive rights. Lil Jon dances with a giant, and somewhat phallic, joint; ‚ÄúLil Lena‚ÄĚ dances in what looks like an oversized onesie. If you want a lengthy analysis (with charts!) about whether or not celebs telling people to do anything is effective, read this from The Atlantic. Or you could just watch the video. And remember, early voting in Georgia starts Monday.
